With just six weeks left until the European Industrial Gases Association (EIGA) kicks off the Winter Session 2015 agenda, gasworld will once again be in attendance reporting live from the event.

Continuing with the format of last year – consisting of a training course split into two parts on the 27th and 28th of January, which is followed by the Seminar on the 28th and 29th of January – the seminar will also be held at the Sheraton Hotel in Brussels, Belgium.

And much like last year, gasworld will be providing live text-based coverage – providing visitors to the gasworld with updates and breaking news as-it-happens at the Winter Session. Live coverage from the event can be found by visiting www.gasworld.com/community/live

The training course for 2015 will be given by three experts in oxygen safety from the association’s member companies, namely Hervé Barthélémy (Air Liquide), Sid Phakey (The Linde Group), and Daniel Tregear (Air Products). Then in the afternoon of 28th of January, the Winter Session will begin with its overall focus on Product Safety.

Stressing the importance of the seminar’s theme is EIGA General Secretary, Phil Brickell, who stated, “All the stakeholders in our industry must be confident that the products we supply and that they use, consume or simply come into contact with are sufficiently safe and do not present an intolerable level of risk to their health and physical safety.”

“The reputation of our industry and its member companies, as well as our ability to continue safely introducing new products to new markets, relies on effective product safety processes.”
